Thank you for posting your query.
The initial problem with which you went to the ER is suggestive of nerve
compression in the lumbar (lower back) region. This is commonly caused by the prolapse (bulging) of the disc. Common symptoms include lower back pain
, pain in the legs, tingling
It can be diagnosed with the help of MRI
. If symptoms persist, you can get the MRI done.
Your second problem of tingling of arms is probably not serious and is due to compression of nerves while sleeping. It should recover in a short span of time and there is no need to go back to the ER.
